This FREE webinar is brought to you by Lincoln, Nebraska, high school student Ryleigh Grove, who set up a birthday fundraiser through Facebook that will fund the speaker fees for this event. NJJA would like to thank Ryleigh for her generosity and commitment to the community.
Through this Zoom webinar, we will sharpen your understanding of leadership strengths and identify ways to leverage those leadership strengths to build high functioning teams.
Dr. Hastings has done extensive research on positive strengths-based leadership in juveniles and young adults for over ten years. Her research specifically focuses on advancing leadership mentoring via generativity, the ability to influence the next generation, as well as social responsibility and community and youth leadership development. As the director of Nebraska Human Resources (NHRI), Dr. Hastings pairs a leadership mentor (outstanding college student leader) with a leadership mentee (ages 1st-12th grade student in Lincoln area) in a one on one investment relationship. Her philosophy of strengths-based leadership focuses on what is “right” with people and how to use our strengths to the fullest capacity to develop and build positive relationships with others and become a difference-maker.
In our community, it is important our juveniles recognize their strengths and how to use them in a synergistic setting. As juvenile justice professionals we have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of many people and create a ripple effect in our community. Hearing from Dr. Hastings will allow us to understand the impact we are capable of.
